possible auto-immune response to nasally administered neurohormone agonist?

You meant a neurohormone receptor agonist (the peptide in question binds the
receptor of that particular neurohormone). To my knowledge, in patients
treated with non-human insulin there have been documented immune reactions
against human insulin. Hope that answers your question.
